My name is Alice Wong and I founded the Disability Visibility Project, a community partnership with StoryCorps and an online community dedicated to recording, amplifying, and sharing disability stories and culture. I'm also a co-partner in #CripTheVote, a nonpartisan online campaign encourages the political participation of disabled people during the 2016 election. The response was so amazing that we're continuing this work indefinitely. All of #CripTheVote's activities take place on Twitter or Facebook. I gave a recent video presentation about our campaign at a conference a few months ago for a panel about social media & civil rights movements, check it out!
